film touches over a very sensitive issue of religious distinction and
people differentiation. A great moment in the film is when Razwan taught
by his mother that one's religion does not differentiate him from

massage is a Message of love and peace to all people. A Message to say
that people are different but they have equal rights.
I like to end with this quote: "Love life and life will love you back. Love people and they will love you back.” By Arthur Rubinstein.
